A very, very well set out and thoughtful presentation of both sides of the Jacobite revolution. Well worth seeing. Very glad we went.

Entry to the battlefield itself is free. Peaceful walking around on a beautifully sunny day. The quietness allows you to envision the battle and the headstones are very moving. Would certainly recommend a visit if in Inverness

No visit to Inverness would be complete without visiting the famous Culloden Fields. The Visitors Centre is really worth visiting, especially if you don’t know the historical background and facts about the battle. A very somber and sobering walk through history as you wander along...More

The type of place you can't describe as good. Powerful, haunting, sad but not good. It is well done with good information, and a powerful "feel" for what happened. A place where what could be described as genocide happened. Go to think and absorb, but...More

The battlefield itself is a quiet and beautiful place which gives a feel of the scale of the conflict. The accompanying museum or visitor centre is superb.

The National Trust visitor centre is excellent with the story of the conflict between the Jacobite's and the English army told from both sides. It was well laid out with plenty of interesting exhibits, plus a restaurant and gift shop. Walking round the battlefield afterwards...More

Allow plenty of time (at least 2hr) if you plan to make the most of the engaging visitor center and also to get around the battlefield.
